We celebrated Brody's birthday this past weekend with some friends and family. It was Mickey Mouse themed (of course)! Brody was so excited for it!
We had to start time out this week...that's been fun! He pretty pitiful. It was so sad (and hilarious) when I made Jordan put him in it. Daddy is supposed to be the fun one, not the disciplinary. :)
After VBS, Brody and I went up to Cincinnati Children's to see Dr. Scott. Brody did amazingly! They put him in the booth to have him listen to sounds at different volumes. Not only did we get Brody to work for the test with both processors on, but we were also able to get a good audiogram with only the right on and then only the left on. His audiogram showed his hearing in normal hearing range. The ones that he missed were so low that I could barely hear them. Since he worked so well, Dr. Scott said he wanted to try doing some vocabulary tests on him.
First, we did the Word Inteligibility by Picture Identification (WIPI) test. The WIPI had 6 pictures on each page and was a little too busy for Brody. After trying two pages, we changed and did the Northwestern University-Children's Perception of Speech (Nu-Chips) test. We got through about 12 pages. Each page had 4 pictures on it. Dr. Scott would say a word (covering his mouth so Brody couldn't see him) and then Brody was to point to the picture that matched the word. He only missed a few. He missed soap, but it was a bar of soup and I'm not sure he has seen anything other than liquid soap. He also missed school, which he doesn't go to yet. Brody missed gum, but has never chewed it. The only one he missed that he knew was coat. He pointed to goat. So although he missed it, it was close! Usually, two year olds aren't given these tests. We are so proud of him!
Brody and Jordan are getting into the World Cup. Sorry Uncle Dany (he's a Spain fan), but Brody learned to say "Gooooooaaallll!"
